Root Cause of Reboot Issue Identified; Updated Guidance for Customers and Partners:

Quote
As we start the week, I want to provide an update on the reboot issues we reported Jan. 11. We  have now identified the root cause for Broadwell and Haswell platforms,  and made good progress in developing a solution to address it. Over the  weekend, we began rolling out an early version of the updated solution  to industry partners for testing, and we will make a final release  available once that testing has been completed.

Based on this, we are updating our guidance for customers and partners:
  • We recommend that OEMs, cloud service providers, system  manufacturers, software vendors and end users stop deployment of current  versions, as they may introduce higher than expected reboots and other  unpredictable system behavior. For the full list of platforms, see the Intel.com Security Center site.
  • We ask that our industry partners focus efforts on testing early  versions of the updated solution so we can accelerate its release. We  expect to share more details on timing later this week.
  • We continue to urge all customers to vigilantly maintain security best practice and for consumers to keep systems up-to-date.

It opens for me but takes an unusually long time.

Similarly, I picked one of my "startup" programs and checked it's "Plus" information, then I tended to my dog. When I got back the WinPatrol Program Information page was open.

Nice find, Corrine. So clearly, it is not just about "physical" security. I am glad I never let my browsers save my passwords. And my password manager does not integrate with my browsers either. :)

When she wants to go on the internet, have her boot the Mint stick and surf safely.
When she is done online, select reboot, boot into XP and remove the mint stick.
